SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate California recently naming surfing as the state's official sport, United Airlines, California's global airline, is getting onboard and removing the service fees for surfboards for customers traveling to or from California.

Effective October 5, customers traveling with a surfboard, wakeboard or paddleboard on direct United Airlines or United Express itineraries that originate or end at any California airport will not have to pay the previous $150 or $200 service fee to check these items. The regular checked-bag fee will apply.


Need a travel bag? A favorite at the shop is the Mystic Pro Kite/Wave Boardbag. There's tons of padding and handles galore that make using this bag so convienent. Really gives a sense of relief when you know you don't have to fight with your gear bag getting from one connection to another.
